“ Just Accomodation”

published 15/07/2005

ProThe stories you get to tell

Consthis is what the review is for! LOL

Teesside Uni is situated in Middlesbrough, England and is fast becoming a well known uni for its exceptional courses in forensics and IT. I have been going to this university for one year now, just finishing my first year.. and what a year it has been! Because there is just too many departments...

Satisfactory

ProThe beer / food is amazingly cheap

ConsWay way to many to list in this box.

Now then, just to summarize before I begin, my school was the school of social sciences and law. Not computing / media / music etc. So I'm writing from my own personal experiences being at Teesside university. I'm currently in my second year and I intend to leave the moment ive completed it...

ProCheap, student friendly location

Conslocation can be rough at times

Alot of these reviews are from students from a fair few years ago and I feel the need, as a current student, to defend Teesside Uni from some rather unfair criticism. LIBRARY Personally I think the library is second to none. During term time the hours are very accommodating, and there is even...

Consyou'll get your car nicked

I was at Teesside Uni. from 1994 until 1999 and saw a lot of changes in that time. I went there with two very poor A’ levels and at the time the joke was the Teesside was the University of Clearing. During the time I was there I was a lot of changes and improvements to the facilities. So...

ProCost of living. Reputation of the course.

Teesside is an up and coming university. When I started my course (Computer Science), in 1995, the facilities were basic. But, since the creation of the new library building, the refurbishment of the student centre, etc., it has come on a long way. Plans for the future include rebuilding one of...

ProCheap and easy to escape from

ConsCold, locals and the IT courses.

Teesside Uni is laughable, for computing courses anyway. My degree and HND have so far not been worth the paper they are printed on despite picking up a 2:1 and HND with commendation for high performance. Despite attending many interviews and filling in countless forms I've got nowhere in the...

I currently am on my first year at Teesside doing a Mulitmedia HND, which I just completed. Although I am Changing to the Creative Visulisation degree next year. Anyway...

“Alright I guess”

published 07/07/2000

ConsSome facilities arent upto much

Teesside Uni is a very new uni hoowever the the Central Tower is on the brink of falling down. It has some of the best facilities in the world in some areas and then in others it is downright disgracful. Take for example the state of the art Virtual Reality centre which is probably the best...

ProCheap cost of living

Consbackward town

I did a BA in history at Teesside between 94 and 97. I should have gone to a top university but made the mistake of letting beer and socialising spoil my A-Levels. I picked Teesside through clearing because they were the quickest to respond via a lovely lady called Margaret who was later one of...

ProGood shops and banks in the town centre

ConsPoor teaching

I did a BA Marketing degree at Teesside University, the worse life choice I ever made. The course was beyond poor, just like the teaching standard, in my opinion. I was given a marketing textbook to purchase, and it was written by one of the lecturers. The marketing book set course material...

ProThe Bus and Train Stations

ConsAdmin, Teaching

Avoid this university if possible. If you are planning to move to the area, check out some of the institutions near you or travel further north to Newcastle or even Scotland. The IT facilities are OK (when they work) but the IT courses they teach are very dated. Old languages such as VRML and...
